Wayne Rooney gets farewell game against US

Wayne Rooney gets farewell game against US

And now, according to The Sun, Rooney will be included in Gareth Southgate's squad for a charity fund-raising friendly against the United States on November 15.

Wayne Rooney is to be called out of global retirement to play for England in a match that will be renamed in his honour and from which his charitable foundation will benefit. And using next week's friendly between England and the United States of America to raise money for charity is a brilliant idea.

"With players like that, you have to be a sponge, you have to think "I am going to get a little bit from that". And now we are to have a testimonial in mid-November.

"This tribute to Wayne is a unique opportunity that is befitting of our nation's record goalscorer", said Southgate.

Speaking to Goalhanger, Ronaldo said: "He's a fantastic lad, as you say in England".

Although Etebo has never played against Cristiano Ronaldo he still has some very kind words for the former Real Madrid legend. Probable lineup (4-3-2-1): Cragno; Srna, Ceppitelli, Pisacane, Padoin; Barella, Bradaric, Ionita; Castro, Pedro; Pavoletti .

Rooney will be presented with an award in recognition of his contribution before the game, but sources have told ESPN FC that he will not play the full 90 minutes and that he will not be considered for the game against Croatia.

Having made his worldwide debut in 2003 as England's youngest ever player, Rooney surpassed Bobby Charlton as his country's leading scorer in 2015. "What he has done throughout his career, for club and country, he has been a special player since day one when he burst onto the scene at Everton". And the cynic would wonder if the FA are only doing this because they are struggling to sell tickets for the Wembley friendly on Thursday week.

Wayne Rooney retired from worldwide duty in August 2017 but will play for England again for charity.

The former Sporting Lisbon star also admitted he was scared about coming back to England in the interview. And even if he wanted to, Gareth has shown his intention in the way he has picked youngsters in his squads.

"I have been hugely impressed with the progress of this young England team".
